During the summer period, high water temperatures combined with intensified fish metabolism can cause oxidative stress in fish.
Oxidative stress is an imbalance between oxidants and antioxidants in favour of oxidants. This situation potentially results in damage of body cells.
Oxidants can be unstable molecules (free radicals) which are by-products from normal cellular processes.
Symptoms of oxidative stress in animals are heat stress, decreased immunity, poor meat quality and reduced appetite.
The Summer Edition contains extra dosages of natural antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances which protect the body cells from unstable molecules and thus prevent some of the damage these might cause.
POSITIVE EFFECTS OF ANTIOXIDANTS
• reduced heat stress
• immune stimulation
• higher feed intake
• improved fish weight gain
The Summer Edition reduces oxidative stress in fish and supports it to cope with high water temperatures. Thus, the Summer Edition promotes efficient feed conversion and good farming results even during challenging summer temperatures.
